Hi Nigel,
thanks, that is exactly what I need!
The formula overview does not describe the possible options for “USER ()”. Is there an overview where this is described?

I think there would be an improvement of formula document.

I also tried to get the User()'*s email days ago. After several attempts, from trying input formulas by myself, to reading the whole document, I learnt User().Email formula in one community post.

Maybe adding some description about .Email formula in the User() section would be great.

That’s a great suggestion - will file a follow-up task to get that taken care of.
